Carly Rae Jepsen
has signed on for a new televised concert dedicated to ending bullying.

The Canadian pop star is joining forces with the USA Network to honor National Bullying Prevention Month, “USA Today” reports.

The concert, #UniteLIVE: The Concert to Rock Out Bullying, will take place on October 3 at a “surprise location.”

“Change doesn’t happen overnight, but with programs like this, we can spark a dialogue that will make a real difference in putting a stop to bullying,” she said in a statement.

Stars from USA’s programming will also take part in the event, though no names have yet been announced.

The “Call Me Maybe” singer will also appear in a public service announcement for the network’s Characters Unite “I Won’t Stand For …” campaign.

Jepsen has spoken out on other social issues in the past as well, cancelling a show for the Boy Scouts of America earlier this year in light of their ban on gay Scout leaders.
